Earthbound Farm is an American farm located near San Juan Bautista, California. It is America's largest grower of organic produce. It was also the first company to produce prewashed, packaged salad greens on an industrial scale. Earthbound Farm was founded in 1984 by Drew and Myra Goodman, on a 2.5 acres (10,000 m2) farm in California’s Carmel Valley. After 25 years, the company now employs 150 farmers on 30,000 acres (120,000,000 m2). In The Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan referred to Earthbound Farm as "a company that arguably represents industrial organic farming at its best."
